Restored beauty!

In earlier posts, I often wished I had taken "before" and "after"photos of projects, so in preparing for a local craft show, I decided to make a more concentrated effort to do so! The 2nd item, the oak night stand, was actually a road side freebie that my hubby spotted!  He could tell it was a good piece of furniture when he saw it...the only downside was that it was covered with candle wax!  But after alot of sanding...some staining and some panited vintage was beautiful once again!

Pattern or design used: My own design - Urban Iron Art and Newtiques

Happy junking & creating!
